A few Christmas Ideas: Plus the 12 Days of Christmas Sale!

HI Everyone
Well I have been MIA for so long, thought I better post something!! Here are the projects my Scrap Group and Technique Group did yesterday. I must say the pictures do them NO justice at all. They are so much better in person! If you click on the scrap page you can see all the cute details for the embellishments: I made a peppermint candy by using the 1 3/8" circle punch on Real Red and Whisper White: cut out the red and glue on the white, cover with Versa Mark and Glassy Glaze Embossing powder and heat set; wrap it up in cellophane and tie with the Silver cord from the mini. Totally cased the idea from the Canadian Scrapbooker Winter edition! The cute tag is made with the Delightful Decoration Stamp set & co-ordinating punch from the mini as well; I silver embossed it and tied it with the same Silver Cord. The mini is retiring on January 4th, so if you would like to order any of these supplies please contact me asap or go to my Web Site & click SHOP NOW. And while you are there, take a peak at the 12 Days of Christmas Sale SU! has put on! It is packed full of Big Shot dies on Sale PLUS new colors of Decor Vinyl! Lastly with Brushed Silver Card stock we cut out the Snowflake #2 Die with the Big shot, and finished it off with a strip of Mistletoe Ribbon from the mini.
I didn't take a great picture of the card: sorry! I should have taken a picture of it closed to you can see the contrast of the double scallop edge with the inside of the card on very vanilla. To make this simple funky edge design you use SU! Slit Punch ($8.50!!): You go to the center of your cards edge, punch the slit, move 1/8" over and punch again till the end of the card, repeat on other other side so the whole edge is punch with slits (the slit punch makes a semi circle slit). Next you will fold the punched slits back & tuck in a co-ordinating card stock behind it (on my card it is the red). This will give you the double scallop look.
For the card front we stamped the reindeer from The Holiday Line-Up set ( my fav! ) onto Kraft c/s, and layered onto Real Red and Old Olive tied some Mistletoe Ribbon (2 pack from mini, other one on scrap page). Finally we inked up a half back pearl from the Pretties kit with Craft Real Read & dip it in Glassy Glaze Embossing Powder & heat set. The inside was stamped with the cute set Sparkly & Bright.

Thanks for stopping by & drop me a line if you would like to order anything from the Sale or the Mini before it is too late!
